|Tummy Fix, Nip + Fab|
I have heard a lot of rave reviews about the brand Nip+Fab and have since been eager to try. I was fortunate enough to find this product in a £9 gift set from TK Maxx (bargain!) which included Bust Fix and Dry Leg Fix which I swiftly sold as it was the Tummy Fix I was desperate for and certainly did not want to branch out £19.25 just to try it. I must say, I am very glad I did not pay for this product alone because quite simply, out of the many ‘toning’ products I have used, this is by far the worst (and potentially most expensive). Yes boys and girls, this review is actually a negative one.
I did not buy this product expecting miracles. I workout frequently and have a good diet. Abs come from hard work and dedication, not a bottle. However, I still buy these products as I like to think I’m getting something extra in my daily moisturiser. Every little helps right?
Upon using the product, I felt no difference. My torso area was no more moisturised than it is from regular lotion. I would even go as far to say that is was less moisturised and instead coated with a slow drying sticky gel which scent bordered on average to unpleasantly chemically. I am very habitual in my routine. I would wake up, dry body brush, apply Tummy Fix and wait for it to dry before getting dressed. I did this almost every day until the tube ran dry. Nip+Fab states “uses a revolutionary formula to improve skin tone + texture around the abdominal area… with active ingredients to promote elasticity, sculpt, hydrate…” so I was obviously expecting results. Not ripped washboard abs, but maybe a subtle tightening feeling, a little tingle, a slight sheen perhaps, just anything! So I persevered and saw it through to the end as I thought maybe after continuous use of beyond 6 weeks I would start to feel/see a difference. I was wrong.
It certainly did not live up the the hype and you are better off buying products that are a 5th of the price which actually give results.
Any positive points? Well, the packaging is pretty and because I sold the two additional products it came with, I made a profit. If I had realised that people would pay so much for such an inferior product, I would have stocked up and made a small fortune. Tummy Fix? Tummy Flop!
